Simply Summer Sundress for AG & WW dolls

I made both long & short dresses in the 18" and the 14.5" sizes. The creative possibilities are endless. Make a long dress with sparkly trim for a formal dress, or a cute sundress in a colorful, summery fabric with a pretty ribbon trim. Add a little jacket or shawl and some cute sandals for a complete look. I love patterns like this which are not only quick & easy to make up, but allow for a great deal of versatility.

Great pattern, so simple to use. Granddaughter wanted some disco clothes for her dolls! I found some glitzy fabric and used the halter half of the dress, zig-zag stitched the bottom hem, hand stitched the fiddly bits of Velcro, using a buttonhole stitch to neaten the open edges. With a pair of black leggings, it really cuts the mustard!

I made two out of different fabrics. Good clear pattern instructions. I used press studs rather than Velcro because I find the doll hair gets tangled and torn by the hooks.
